Default How do I activate car mode? (resolved)

So? Anyone know? Or does it only work with the HTC dock?

There is a "Car" icon. looks like a steering wheel. tap that and it puts the phone in car mode.

Sorry, I should have specified that the icon doesn't appear in my app drawer. It is in my list of apps when I go into settings - Apps, however.

If you have the AT&T version, it isn't "usable". I was able to find it under app-> all but I couldn't find it anywhere else. It wasn't till I downloaded the nova launcher and started using that, that it showed up under my app drawer and I was able to open it and use it.

You're not a noob, it's ok. A lot of people watched video reviews of the international model HTC One and noticed an app called "car", which is a car mode that puts things in a driver friendly layout. However AT&T's bloat ware car mode took the place of this app. It is actually still loaded on your phone, but not accessible with the stock Sense 5. If you use nova launcher or any other launcher from the playstore, it will show up in your app drawer and be usable.

Using the file manager ES File Explorer's app manager you'd create a shortcut icon of the 'Car' app on your home screen

theirs also an app in the app store called quickshortcutmaker it will search for car and create a shortcut on your home screen also.

it's pretty ridicules AT&T Decided to hide this from us
but it does work if you make the shortcut.

Definitely, especially as they didn't bother to actually remove it, just hide it. Pretty rubbish of them, to be honest.
